Yeah.

93, just heartbreaking.

We were giving Parra a bath when injury struck our halfback.

Steve Stone, Laurie Daley and Trevor Schodel all filled in.
Trevor Schodel actually coached me in first grade when I was still running around. Decent fella

Your team's big question to answer in the trials

Canberra Raiders: Can George Williams slot in seamlessly?

One of the biggest surprise packets of 2019, the Raiders surged from 10th the year before to a grand final berth. Both their performances and team selections were incredibly consistent through 2019, and they'll now be replacing halfback Aidan Sezer with England international George Williams.

Bonus question: Will Curtis Scott push Joey Leilua out of the starting side?

Extremely worried about the observations Dana made about George Williams. Couldn't land a pass, couldn't land a kick, can't throw, can't bowl.

I heard a story from someone up there that said they walked in on him in the loo and he couldn’t even wipe himself.

Time to start freaking out.

Azza, I'm not too worried about form during a 'holiday' training session in January. I'll be more concerned if we see it in the trial matches though.

If you were talking ‘1st grade’ at school, you and Schodel would have been the same height.

Sia Soliola re-unites with Alex Surb Club teenage who saved his life

Two years after being dragged from the surf at Alexandra Headland in an off-season training incident downplayed as a “bit of trouble'' in 2018, the Raiders giant has re-united with the Sunshine Coast teenage life saver who rescued him.

NRL 2020: Your club’s biggest issue to solve this season

Is George Williams the man to take the Raiders that extra step?

You’d be a fool to question the Raiders’ recruitment of the English halfback considering their track record with bringing Super League players to the NRL. But there is obviously some trepidation surrounding the No.7 and if he can steer the side to go one better than their grand final appearance.

Canberra Raiders players run for cover as hail lashes NRL training session

New recruit Curtis Scott left Melbourne but took the ‘Storm’ with him to Canberra. The outside back and his teammates were left running for cover after a freak hail storm disrupted training on Monday. Raiders coach Ricky Stuart insisted the day’s training be completed.

Across Canberra, the large hail caused extensive damage to hundreds of cars and properties and injuries to wildlife

Why Ricky is happy with “filthy” Canberra Raiders

After going so close last year, it is critical the Canberra Raiders maintain their Grand Final momentum this season. And it is why coach Ricky Stuart is happy his team is still burning about the loss in the premiership decider.

“They are filthy, they are not happy with it. And the way we trained last week showed there is no taking it easy. Obviously it is a test of character but if you are worthy of being tagged with being a very good NRL player or a very good NRL team that is what you do, you be consistent.”
